Mixing lipcolors to create new and varied shades...

I'm an extremely creative soul and love to experiment with color whether its my hair, clothing and most definitely makeup especially lipsticks... I've been playing chemist at home and creating new colors with lipsticks I already own... And no I'm not ruining my l/s collection because I apply one color to the top and one to the bottom for a 50/50 mashup or with a lipbrush for a more detailed ratio depending on my desired shade intensity... I also might add clear lipglass for the ultimate shine or to sheer things out... Here r some examples I love to wear: Cyber + Up the Amp= a beautiful muted purple, VG Nicki + Morange = a beautiful bright coral, Snob + Up the Amp = a pretty medium lavender... Its all about playing around with color to satisfy ur own needs and desires so alter colors as u like and most of all HAVE FUN!!! Please share ur recipes and thoughts if u have any :)

I often have to mix lipstick colors till I'm satisfied that it suits me :) I love Mac Angel + Please Me = A bright wearable pink with a little frost. Mac Blankety + Creme Cup = A pretty nude more on the pinky side. Revlon Soft Nude + Revlon Luminous Pink = A nude with a pink sheen.

I should try this. I don't experiment with mixing lipsticks shades too much, but I do play around with pairing lipstick to different lip pencils and glosses. One combo that I remember off the top of my head is Currant l/p + Fushion Pink + All Of My Purple Life l/g. It was this really pretty multidimensional orange-pink-purple shade.

I do a lot of mixing l/l with l/s to change the appearance or add depth.

VGII + plum l/p
O l/s + a variety of l/p: Currant, Vino, Nightmoth, Chestnut - changes the way O looks.
Ruby Woo l/s + different liner - Currant, Mahogany, Cherry - either line lips only & fill in w/lipstick or completely shade lips w/liner and cover w/lip stick.

I need to try Snob + Up the Amp sounds really pretty. My go to pinky nude lip is St Germain + Boy Bait cremesheen glass, don't have a lot nudes so I often do this combo a lot. I need to pick up Blankety since everyone likes it.

I actually wanted to buy Cyber or Rebel but I figured I have Night Violet and I barely use that so why bother. A mix I also like is ELF lip pencil in Tea Rose or Lavender Whip mix with UTA... I like my different variations of purple lipstick ha.
